Funky Pants

In between sewing some orders, I’ve been working on some fall clothes for the little miss (and my Etsy), as well as a little something for me.

It’s another pattern from my “someday” collection — those ones I bought to sew something for myself more than a year ago and never got around to it. These pants are Simplicity 4023, one of the company’s It’s So Easy line of patterns (it does appear to be out of print, however). No joke, either. I think they were done in an hour or so. Of course, they’re not quite done; I still need to hem them.

I used a linen blend from Joann‘s in one of my favorite colors, a dark teal. They are so incredibly comfortable! I want to make a complete buffet of wide-leg pants now, in every color under the rainbow. OK, maybe not every color. Black and navy for sure, though. I’m not sure how flattering they are. Even my oldest, who took this picture, said my legs looked “chunky” if I stood a certain way, even though he knows they are not. (Good save, kiddo!) I think I’ll have to wear them with a slim tee or tank to balance the volume on the bottom.

  1. Love those! I think I might have that same pattern. Not sure, but I have a Simplicity one that I have used for the past four or five years….the same one over and over again… I love my pants that much! I’m not sure how flattering mine are either, but I have never had anyone say anything negative about them and if they did, I wouldn’t care ’cause they are so darn comfy! 🙂
